6:00pm
the state passes jessica's law. and bill, why are you afraid to confront new york governor andrew cuomo on jessica's law? >> a number of hard hitting reports on the governor. we now believe that like governor christie in new jersey he will sign jessica's law if it gets to his desk and we're working on that. not easy in new york. new jersey we did it and now we're coming here. william, liverpool, england. bill, this year i did not drink on st. patrick's day instead donated 50 pounds to charity. well, a tip of the hot to you, william. thanks for taking my tip of the day. bill from california i was disgusted by jesse watters showing teenagers inebriated at st. patrick's day. and arc gnaw, brit hume looked hot last night in his sweater.
6:01pm
so let me get this straight, kay, you are saying that mr. hume looked hot, as in smoking? that's got to make his week. i don't think he ever heard that before. and finally tonight the factor tip of the day, had to read a lot of fiction because so much real stuff to digest, i have more homework than most kids. and it's a very exciting book, much better than washington tv and may keep you up nights. factor tip of the day, check out "six years." that's it for tonight. we would like you to spout off about the factor anywhere in the world. oreilly@foxnews.com, name and town, name and town and the word of the day, do not be impetuous when writing the factor. it's nothing to do with dogs and cats. do not be impetuous. if you're he watchiwatching fro
6:02pm
exotic place on the globe, let us know. we'll read them tomorrow. i'm bill o'reilly, remember, the spin stops here. we're definitely looking out for you. >> . >> and this is a fox news alert. the result are in from the special congressional race, and associated press reporting that former south carolina governor mark sanford is advancing to the runoff. he reportedly said it was a treat and blessing to be back on the ballot and the ap is reporting that the democratic challenger in that race will be elizabeth colbert-bush, her brother is nobody other than stephen colbert. and president barack obama left the united states and currently en route to israel for his first visit to that
6:03pm
nation since he took office. it comes on a day when disturbing news was bracking in the region. now, there are unconfirmed reports that earlier today, a possible chemical weapons attack was carried out in northern syria. and at this hour, both the assad regime and the rebels are blaming one another for the deadly rocket blasts that killed the at least 31 people and that included 21 civilians. now, according to reuters photographer who was on the ground, people were seen suffocating in the streets and the air apparently smelled of chlorine. it's unclear who is behind the attack, the white house is expressing skepticism over the regime's claim that it was the rebels. >> at this time we have no evidence to substantiate that charge and we're skeptical deeply of a regime that might make that charge given that the regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the syrian people and the world. having said that we're obviously assessing the reports and without getting into intelligence matters, i
6:04pm
can tell you that we're making evaluations about the reports. >> sean: now, as the obama administration continues to make assessments about the developing situation overseas, questions are raised if the u.s. should intervene in the civil war. the president said the chemical weapons against the syrian people would constitute a red line. remember this? >> we have been very clear to the assad regime, but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons being moved around or utilized. that would change my calculus, change my equation. >> sean: was that red line crossed today in syria? how will these events impact the president's trip to israel? helping me answer the questions and much more, colonel oliver north and juan
6:05pm
williams, gentlemen, welcome back to "hannity." >> sean. >> sean: let's go country by country. north korea threatens to nuke us. they have a new video out showing them blowing up our capital. what has obama done, nothing. china cyber warfare and stealing our secrets, what has obama done, nothing. iran's advancement with nuclear weapons, nothing. and russia flying over air space, nothing. and syria, nothing. only thing i see the president doing kissing the back side of a muslim brotherhood leader morsi giving him 250 million in and jets. what's he going to do. >> i guess diplomacy don't appeal to you, and working with our allies doesn't appeal to you. no, what appeals to you, sean, is go to war. >> sean: i didn't say go to war. i asked you a question, what has he done, not a thing.
6:06pm
russia with weapons over our air space, what is he going to do. >> not only impose sanctions, but sent the fleet out there and-- >> sanctions? >> no, no, i said we've sent military armaments to the area. >> sean: what do we do with north korea, threatening throwing nuclear weapons on american cities. >> it's clear we've been talking. >> sean: talking. >> you look at syria right now. >> sean: talking. >> we're in fact having arms sent in to the rebels, through not only saudi arabia, you look at the support we're offering to turkey in terms of the people that are fleeing and jordan to try to buck up the rebels to defeat assad, these are real steps. >> sean: colonel north, you know what i see? i see a weak president and literally being run over because the world sees him as weak and he does nothing. i mean, if -- i can't imagine them flying arms over our air
6:07pm
space with nuclear weapons and nothing happening. >> what we are seeing, of course, is the consequences of leading from behind. and let's deal quickly, sean, with what we saw this morning. i've seen the intelligence reports, i've seen the unclassified version of it and we've seen the video out of alepto today. as a person that understands about chemical weapons, ten years ago today i was wearing a chemical suit and broadcasting on your show. on the footage right now, there's no evidence of anybody suffering from the symptoms of exposure to chemical agents. whether it's propaganda on the part of the rebels or the part of the government, it appears to me, as a person who understands what the results of a chemical weapons exposure would be, there's nothing in the footage that-- >> what about the reporter, chlorine smell and 31 dead? >> certainly would not want to take anything from our
6:08pm
colleagues, reporters from reuters or anybody else, but the bottom line, when a large, like a warhead or a scud goes off you smell ammonia gas and you might smell something that smells like chlorine, that's the consequences of the explosion. again, i don't see any evidence. >> sean: fair enough. i think that's important. >> or chemical agents. >> sean: let's look at the bigger picture though. and north korea, china, iran. >> i'm with you. >> sean: russia. >> go ahead, i don't want to run out of time on this, here is the bottom line, if we wanted to stop the north koreans from being able to build nuclear weapons and the means of delivering them and the iranians from getting their hands on the same technology, we could do it. we have never imposed the kinds of unilateral sanctions that say if you do business with iran or north korea, you cannot do business here in the united states. this administration could and should do that as a last step, a last resort before we resort to the use of arms. >> sean: let me show this video because the north koreans released it today. not only are they threatening
6:09pm
to nuke the united states. now they're putting out videos where they're showing all of this weaponry and there you go, right at the u.s. capitol, they show the u.s. capitol being blown up, juan. what has he done, and what has he said to the russians flying over our air space, and what about the cyber attraction in china. the only one he seems to be sucking up to and kissing his feet is mohammed morsi. >> this is not true and i hope you heard what oliver north said. people are trying to sucker us into a war and they want to-- >> did i say war? >> they want our people on the ground. this guy in north korea, these guys buffoon, he puts out a tape and sean hannity wants to start a war. >> sean: wait a minute, did i say start a war? >> you dismiss sanctions. >> sean: wait a minute. >> you dismiss diplomacy.
6:10pm
>> sean: under george bush or ronald reagan, correct me colonel north, if i'm wrong, you worked for president reagan, i can't see a president doing nothing time and time again and the only people he seems to be nice to are radicals like mohammed morsi? >> and the united nations. what we've done, we've gone to the united nations well so many time, and what he's done is allowed himself and believe that the united nations was going to stop the north koreans, inter-continental ballistic missiles. they've done it and unless we say carefully, if you have a business that's doing business with either of these two countries, you cannot do business with the united states. >> sean: colonel north, let me ask you this, do you think the world by these acts of aggression, and that's how i view them. do you think they perceive barack obama as weak?
6:11pm
>> what they're hoping for is american leadership from the front and they're not getting it today. >> nobody thinks america is weak and anybody who does needs to look at what we did in afghanistan. we put men on the ground, we put our money behind it and we've accomplished our mission and it's time for the american people to say enough of this war. >> sean: whether they perceive it or not, i see him as weak. i think the president is weak and that's a shame because you know what? america needs to be strong. if we don't fill that void and he step up and lead from the front, then i shudder to think who will lead and we need to defund the muslim brotherhood. thank you both. he's been described as a radical's radical, someone who came from the hugo chavez, sean penn wing of the radical party and did you know at that tom perez is poised to become your next labor secretary. when we come back, jay sekulow

6:15pm
>> all right. of move over chuck hagel and john brennan, because barack obama has found another radical for the controversial cabinet. this time the nominee to be the next labor secretary. thomas e perez currently
6:16pm
oversees the civil rights division and to no one's surprise he has a long history of controversy. and don't take my word for it. when he was floated as a potential pick, jay adams had this to say about his former colleague when he spoke "the great one" mark levin. >> tell us about this fellow perez before he went into the justice department. >> well, he's a radical's radical, used to be maryland, and worked with the-- he's an extreme radical, anti-business, a racialist to the core. >> can you imagine this man in charge of the labor department, the total leapt. >> totally lawless, this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. >> joining me now with the reaction from americans for
6:17pm
justice, jay sekulow and congressman dennis kucinich. you didn't like when the black panthers were outside with the batons the polling place in philly, you didn't like that. >> that case didn't have anything to do with secretary designate perez. >> actually, it did. the issue came up with the new black panther case in which the inspector general reviewed the case and supported the accusation that there is racial hostility within the civil rights division within the doj when it comes to enforcing civil rights laws and equally when the defendant in the case is black, and the victim in the case is white, and in particular, that existed under mr. perez's civil rights division. >> no, actually the black-- the new black panther party case was resolved before mr. perez joined the justice department. >> sean: and i'm telling you what the inspector general reviewed. >> the inspector general reviewed whether or not there was conflict in that division. yes, there was. there was conflict between
6:18pm
careerists and political appointees. >> sean: he's a radical's radical and-- >> come on, that's not content. >> radical, radical, radical, buzz, buzz, buzz, that's not content. what does he stand for, stood for workers. >> sean: jay. >> he stands for what george soros stands for. this guy nominated to be the secretary of labor and perez is in fact-- several of those he was on funded by george soros. the fact of the matter is not particularly just the case of the new black panther party, it's the pervasive display that took place inside of the justice department where the idea and application of the law was being filtered through a lens that's not the way the law is written and that's the real problem with mr. perez. >> sean: explain the inspector general's report. >> well, you've got the voting rights act. >> yeah, but look, that's-- none of this justifies the fact that the inspector
6:19pm
general himself in their report said that the stripe and the politicalization and the way in which the voting rights act was problematic. there was no violation of the law per se. we get that. if you look the at the political nature of the appointed this is a george soros designee being appointed as secretary of labor and that's frightening, sean. >> and racial hostility-- aren't they saying racial hostility within the civil rights division of the doj? >> right. >> that's exactly what they said, actually and they were not applying the law when it came to suppression of other groups. first of all, you talk about the new black panther party. >> section five-- >> that's symptomatic of the problem in the justice department. not applying the voting rights act the way it was to be applied. >> sean: that's what you're taking issue with the inspector general report? >> section 5 of the voting rights act, congressional, as well as the practice--
6:20pm
i'm answering the question and get to what the ig is talking about. the voting rights act understands and contemplates that minorities have been historically discriminated against and this is something that mr. perez is familiar with and it's his job to make sure that such-- >> dennis, i asked you a different question. i asked you what the inspector general report says, the accusation is racial hostility within the civil rights division of the doj. does that bother you? do you think that's a lie? >> perez is not racially hostile. mr. perez is someone who has served administrations, not only-- >> then why did they make the accusation, did it come out of nowhere? >> they're not saying that he is a racist. >> charge of it-- >> so why are we making this a racial thing? why aren't we asking about his qualifications. >> and the right to work and people are saying-- this is a smear campaign. >> you've got to look at the voting rights act and if you
6:21pm
want to talk about context, here is in context. you've got a group in front of a voting booth or voting station and they've got batons and say the people are hispanic and are you saying that the voting rights act apply? >> any attempt to impede anyone's progress to vote. >> anyone's progress. >> by definition can be prosecuted in a state court and the justice department, as you know the justice department-- >> can be. >> dismissed the whole idea. >> they took the position that's only applied to a particular group and it does not apply as it's meant to apply, voter intimtation and-- >> wait, wait, wait, hang on, dennis, i've got a question for you, wait a minute, you've seen the pictures. you've seen the images, dennis of those guys in front of the philly polling booth. don't you think that that was a violation of voting rights act? >> look, anybody who's inside of any--
6:22pm
near any polling place anywhere whether you're carrying a sign or baton if you're within the flag get in trouble with-- the overall question here is what does perez have to do with this? absolutely nothing. this is a red herring. >> he was the chief of the division. >> sean: jay last word. >> he was the chief of the division and set the policy. >> but that happened before he was in the position he's in. that's what i'm trying to tell you. you should know that. >> no, he's been consistent position until today. and he's been in charge of that. >> it happened after he was already in office. it happened before he was in. >> sean: all right. >> that's something you've got to pay attention to. >> sean: we've got to run. >> the facts are the fact. >> i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. >> hillary clinton is just the latest democrat to evolve on gay marriage, but she's not alone. we're background going to demonstrate how other members of her party have flipped and flopped, and flopped and flipped in order to win

>> lgbt americans are our
6:27pm
colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. that's why i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. >> sean: oh, boy. that was hillary clinton reading from a teleprompter and coming out in support of same sex marriage in a human rights campaign video and a flip-flop from her past position. another position that she's setting her sights on the oval office in 2016. and she's not the only one who evolved, president obama flipped and flopped and flipped back. remember this. >> what i believe is that marriage is between it a man and woman. i'm not in favor of gay
6:28pm
marriage, i'm in favor of civil unions. >> define marriage. >> i believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. >> i'm not somebody promote same-sex marriage. >> at a certain point i concluded that for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> sean: and in other words, here, just like hillary clinton, he will take whatever position he thinks is necessary just to win the election. jing me now with reaction, former aide to senator john kerry. adjunct professor mark hannan and radio talk, our good friend dennis is back. obama flipped and flopped and flipped. he was for gay marriage and then against gay marriage when running for president and now he's for gay marriage now that he got elected again. is that political expediency or just having trouble with the issue? >> i think you think it's political expediency. >> sean: yeah, obvious.
6:29pm
>> let me quote winston churchill if i might. >> sean: i love when liberals quote churchill. >> let me hear the quote. >> said if you don't have the ability to change your mind, are you sure you still have one. look the fact of the matter is-- >> change your mind for, against, and for again. >> hillary clinton is coming out and disingenuous, but the fact of the matter is republican governor of ohio did this days earlier the rnc put out a report saying we need to quote, unquote, evolve and party of stoogy old white men-- >> i know you want to turn this into a republican issue. when obama does it at one point he has a real position, he's for it. >> sure. >> sean: then he's running for president, polls don't show he's in agreement with the american people and then he's against it and gets reelected and now i can be for it again. now what? that is what everything everybody i know, dennis praguer, hates about
6:30pm
politicians. god bless her, i like hillary clinton in some ways, i've got to tell you something, that's so phony, i want to read this prompter and tell you. it didn't seem sincere. >> we've got to be clear, it's a flip-flop as they say in the case of the president because he knew it was not popular when he was running in 2008 and he knows it's popular now and that's fine and maybe he sincerely changed his mind, but i believe originally he was for same-sex marriage. the thing is that what you just said is a very important point and i'd like to address it about stoogy old republicans or men or/and women. >> sean: and the republican as well. >> rand paul changed his position on immigration reform. >> let's-- it's too complex, this subject, to go to another one. >>. >> it's equal opportunity on hypocrisy here. >> and the repercussions of changing the definition of marriage. something progressives, liberals, leftists, whatever
6:31pm
you want to call them do regularly. they have a very strong sense of compassion, they make a policy, the policy often and usually doesn't work, but it doesn't matter because it's stage one thinking. leftism is rooted in the heart. i have as much compassion for gays as the president, but i don't want to redefine marriage to state that-- >> we're talking about a policy position though, not the flip-flop as you call it or the changing of the mind. >> sean: you know why you're so-- hang on a second. you know why you're so committed to the flip-flop issue you're for the guy who says i voted for it before i voted against it. >> and you know how that sounds, i voted for the 87 billion before you-- >> i know you've worked in the private sector and i have worked in the private sector, poll it tigsiticians have to gr die. >> say what the people want to hear and change your mind-- >> 87% of young people want
6:32pm
to-- >> you want to debate the issue and i'm talking about the character of the candidates and why they change and arguing expediency. >> may i ask you a quick question. >> sean: you're not the host. >> you don't think it was political expediency for the president to say in 2008 that he was against same-sex marriage? >> there's one thing to market yourself and i think the president and hillary is authentic just like when sean said after the election he wants to evolve-- >> forget the first phrase which was totally consistent, control the borders first and i've never changed. >> and the context that wasn't included, come on. >> sean: there's no context when you go for gay marriage, against gay marriage, for gay marriage. and first of all, "the bible" the series is amazing and roma downey and her husband mark burnett on the program and they are getting massive numbers for cable, almost like american idol, you don't see
6:33pm
in cable news or cable channel and that's on the bible, and the person that was playing the devil, well, we'll put it up on the screen. some people are saying it looks like barack obama. when i was watching it this weekend, i turned it my wife and i said whoa, she looked back at me and said, whoa, i think it looks like him. do you? >> i think it does, but i don't see what the point is other than to draw an association between the devil and the president. i mean, that's pretty-- >> if you were running a campaign that would be a great political ad, sean, but-- >> i don't think there's anything intentional. it's not the devil and-- >> no, no one is calling him the devil. >> you just put it on your screen and by implication. >> sean: did i call him the devil? >> and you're showing the comparison. >> sean: i put you on the screen and i'm not calling you the devil. >> you didn't put me next to the devil-- >>, but in the show, and the question is i believe that it wasn't intentionally done because apparently this guy
6:34pm
played this character before. >> are people accusing them? >> yeah. >> that's silly. >> sean: i agree-- >> and amused by it and why i put it on the screen. >> and they're getting the ratings they are, there is a thirst for some morning, the same-sex issue is that example. everyone who says that marriage should be redefined says that christianity is immoral and dead among. >> and judaism is dead wrong-- >> i've been a catholic and i could be by the progressive world view, but i don't hear that from my priest and-- >> are you pro gay marriage. >> i'm pro marriage equality. >> are you pro-abortion. >> i'm pro choice, but these are more complex issues. >> sean: you're at odds with your church and-- you're at odds with the church on this issue. >> your new pope is-- >> with the catechism of the
6:35pm
catholic charge and at odds with the bible-- >> the bible is pretty clear that it does have a heterosexual ideal and-- we can talk about usery being immortal as well and-- >> gentlemen, thank you, and next on hannity. >> do you think that's a serious threat that the u.s. government could come after our private bank deposits? >> yes, i do. >> sean: could the federal government seize your personal savings in your bank account during an economic crisis? one financial expert is sounding that alarm. when he we come back, stuart varney and dana perino will join me for reaction. and star parker, behind this controversy commercial, to jim crow laws. and we want you to follow the live show and share your thoughts. hannitylive.foxnews.com. has an equally thrilling, lesser-known counterpart.

deposit tax this afternoon, uncertainty how the country will fund its bailout remanges. now, all of this put the financial markets on edge for the day and as you heard, it's raising many concerns that such radical measures could one day be taken in america. is that possible? joining me now with reaction from the fox business network, stuart varney and co-host of "the five" dana perino. you say it better than i do. >> my name? his name, stuart varney. >> sean: and saying that there's a debt crisis. >> i don't agree with either one of them. >> the lesson from cyprus is simple. there are two lessons. all governments should get a grip on its debt. america is not getting a grip on its debt, it should. don't ever threaten to take the private bank accounts of ordinary citizens, because if you do, you will have a
6:42pm
revolt. those are two lessons. >> sean: all hell would break loose, i mean, it would be ugly. the streets, people violence, agree? >> yes, i do, except for i think it's a little like calling in the black helicopters when we're talking about this because it's not going to happen here, at least not for the next 60, 70 years and we have a problem and a crisis. but we have time to deal with it. but we don't have the same type of system and the problem of the russians putting money in the system. >> you're forgetting something. america can print as many dollars as it wants to. cyprus cannot print the euros. and what the cypriots did with the idea of stealing people's private money put the fear into bank accounts the world over. >> sean: we have the solution right before our very eyes. it's in north dakota, unemployment at 3%, they're
6:43pm
building schools and hospita hospitals. people are getting six-figure jobs that know nothing about the oil industry. >> that's a great point. what was the solution that the russians offered, give us the exploration rights to your natural gas and we'll fix the problem. we can fix our own problems, right. >> all america wants to do is get the resources which are ours, and if it went gung-ho for the oil and gas under our own territory, you could have 4, 5, 6% growth for the american economy and a long way toward solving the debt problem. >> sean: here is the new world order as relates to fossil fuels. we have more oil, fossil fuel energy than iraq, iran and saudi arabia combined. we have it all. especially with the new technology. that means what's happening in north dakota could happen in the entire country. and we could get out of our debt. we could get out of our deficits, we could save social security, medicare and have an economic growth boom that we haven't seen in a long time. >> california alone in one
6:44pm
shale oil field has 100 billion barrels of oil. that is california. >> sean: how stupid, we are a stupid country. we're stupid because we allow the government-- why are you looking at me. >> i'm agreeing with you. >> sean: we're a stupid country. >> we need to get out of our own way, but this is a little bit after small detail, but a very important one for business and for america to understand. last week, one of the rules of the obama administration put out was to say that if you're going forward with any sort of project you're going to have to tell us how much carbon that will put out into the-- so it's called the nipa analysis and that's like putting a ten pound weight on everybody's ankle. >> sean: that's a hundred pound weight. >> it sounds like a minor bureaucratic detail, but it will strangle-- >> you guys will weigh in and i hope you'll pick a fight with you here. i've got to tell you, dana, they're not doing this, not
6:45pm
taking this message to the american people. if you tell the american people we can save social security, medicare, balance the budget get out of our financial troubles, build schools in your community and prisons whatever else they need to build, we'll have a lot of money left over. why aren't the republicans wrapping their arms around this and screaming it from the roof tops? >> republicans do not the have someone who is pounding the table with a positive message about growth, prosperity and the economy. >> sean: come on, stuart. >> i can do it. >> sean: why isn't someone doing that? i don't know. >> there doesn't seem to be an articulate leader in the republican party who will get out there who says we need growth, prosperity and energy. >> sean: and they don't have message discipline. you have message discipline when you were in the white house. >> i worked with somebody who had principles so it's easy to have message discipline when you know what thr hno whknow wh. >> sean: and-- >> i was thinking of a different comparison. >> sean: lies and demagogues. where are the republicans
6:46pm
though? why don't they have the message discipline like the white house would have? >> well, that's harder. when you have the white house it's easier, you have the blunt instrument, the podium every day and the president put him out there and live tv all the time and every newspaper covers you. if you're a congressman like david nunez who does a lot on energy stuff, he doesn't have the microphone to amplify this. >> sean: steny hoyer in an interview used the word "balance" obama's word, eight times and every has their own agenda. >> you can see it in the morning, if something is said on a certain cable news program by a democrat, you know by the end of the day everybody will use the same line. >> sean: and that's the entire news programming. >> it's kind of annoying, oh, today the word is "balance." . >> i'm looking for a republican who will pound the table on the words growth and prosperity. >> i think you need to look at the governor on the energy side of things, i think the governors are doing a better job and collectively even if
6:47pm
they're democrat, there are 30 republican governors, and 20 democrats, come together and to say that president obama, we've got your back on the keystone pipeline, let us have it, let us take the shackles off. >> sean: that's only the tip of the iceberg. >> shell oil told me the other day. >> sean: hofmeister. >> if you liberate america's fossil fuel you'll have 7% growth in the american account. >> sean: we would unleash prosperity we've-- >> that's reaganesque. >> sean: good to see you. did you like your chyron tonight? >> i didn't he see it, were you confronting the establishment? >> inside joke. and coming up next, the controversial ad has been released that compares efforts to limit your second amendment rights to jim crow laws. not surprisingly, it's raising eyebrows. star parker is joining me next and respond to critics. you probably didn't know the senate hair care center,

6:53pm
ad, i'm sure, it makes people very uncomfortable to point to that point in time in american history, but we must. we must because the senate, the democrats in the senate are insistent on passing background check laws. they're insistent on looking at the second amendment and saying some people, some americans should not be able to exercise the right to bear arms. and so, i thought it appropriate to remind americans that we've been here before. you have to ask yourselves, we need to ask ourselves, how is it that 5% of the population, the kkk, 6 million people in the the country of more than 100 million, how is it that that 5% were able to wreak havoc offer 4 million new citizens, former slaves? one of the ways, they systematically, the democrats in power, democrats in political power in the south systematically passed gun control laws in black code so that blacks would not be able to exercise their right to bear arms. when he we start talking-- what? >> do you think that's the
6:54pm
motive of some people now? >> background checks, oh, come on, these are the same democrats that gave us obamacare and said once we pass it you'll find out what's in it. let me tell you something about the background check discussion that we don't get a chance to ask about. how do we know what the qualifiers are going to be? and i think that all americans should be concerned about the qualifiers, if they're saying that if you had any mental problem in your background. does that mean they're going to ask questions about abortion? people who have abortion according to the studies have a tendency to have mental challenges later on. are we going to start asking about divorce? when you look at what happened at sandy hook, the woman who bought the weapons that her son stole, she had gotten a divorce and out drinking. are we going to ask about drinking patterns and medical records in general? i think we should know what's in this before we start saying it's a good idea to do background checks. >> sean: we hear a lot about black on black crime. we see the violence now that's unfolding before our eyes in

chicago. one particular case, i don't know if you know the little girl, five-year-old girl was slaughtered and many instances like this, and do you think that if people live in a dangerous neighborhood, put race aside, should they have guns to protect themselves? >> this is what the second amendment is about. not just protecting ourselves against tyrannical politicians like what's occurring in the united states senate at the hands of the democrats, but also the politicians in the state, but also to protect ourselves and our interests. and when you look at what's happened to the black community after leaving the jim crow and moving into this relationship with federal government to think they're the solve-all, what has happened they have not exercised this right. so blacks own, 16% of blacks own guns compared to the white community 43% of whites exercise this constitutional right. so you have an unarmed population that's concentrated. we also have other challenges in black communities because
